Headache is probably the most common complaint, yet it is difficult to define or treat accurately, that is why in the medical world very often it is repeated that treatment of headache is quite a headache for the doctor. Even though a good majority of headaches are quite harmless, a few ones may indicate a grave disorder like a brain tumour. As such one should consult a competent doctor, in case the headache is continuous and not responding to common remedies.


The causes are so varied that it is often difficult to locate the exact cause, or the physical or emotional problem at the root of the trouble, such as various kinds of tension, fatigue, anxiety or emotional upsets.

In some instances, the headache may reflect some disorder of infection settled somewhere in the body, or accompany a problem affecting the eyes, sinuses, teeth or neck.

Signs & Symptoms

The headache experienced can vary in intensity from mild discomfort to very severe, stabbing pain.
